Bleached crotch in black underwear?!?!?! - Page 5
I just thought it depended on the dye in the cotton, and how it reacted to the acid in CM. Would it be the same reason I have 2 cotton t-shirts out of the many I've owned and worn that bleached under the arms. I had to throw them out, and I only use the same crystal deoderant all the time. And my others are fine, it was just those two that did it, so I thought it was the dye again.
Oh, and i have to add about the crotch thing. My sister once had a stream of tiny black ants get into her undie drawer and they ate the crotches in her undies. She is super clean and she was horrified. Must be a chemical residue stays in the cloth or something : Her DH got great amusement out of calling her "SugarBabe" for weeks after. :
It is funny that none of us have ever talked to anyone about this before! Yay MDC!
Well, I have good news for the bleach-crotch sisterhood (of which I am a member myself)...
It's likely caused by a hydrogen-peroxide-producing bacteria.
And at least according to this study, some of those bacteria are thought to be possibly beneficial to the vaginal ecosystem:
And it is a very common phenomenon (as beautifully illustrated in this hilarious thread)
However, if you're having any symptoms along with the bleaching problem, I'd still mention it to your doctor.
Hope that's helpful!
